Vintage ARTCRAFT 12 K GOLD EYE GLASSES Wire Frame, Case - (eBay item 310001546240 end time Nov-30-07 19:27:50 PST)
This pair of gold eye glasses feature semi-round lenses and flexible wire temples that wrap around your ears. Engraved on the bridge of the glasses is "Artcraft 1/10 12 K GF Ful-Vue." They come in a hard leather case marked, "Dr. C. B. O'Neill, Optometrist, Clymer, PA."
The lenses are scratched all over and scuffed down the centers. The temples are green where the temples start curving around the ears. There aren't really nose pads, just a wider area of frame where they rest on your nose.
The coolest thing about this style of eye glass temples is the way the glasses stay on your head even if you turn upside-down. If you're sick of your spectacles falling off, these are for you.
